This is a great session to learn some mental math strategies for students to be able to calculate operations of multiplication, division, division with fractions and decimals - all without a calculator. Mental Math is so much more than "doing it in your head". It requires the knowledge of how numbers work together (number theory), number patterns, and visualizing operations in order to fully comprehend how to calculate 777/4 without long division or a calculator. These strategies have been developed since humans have been doing mental math - which was very common before the 1980's. Come and learn the old math strategies for mental mathematics!
